exposing the process doesn't have to mean that you are trying to highlight
or fix meaning as such, something that is constructed subjectively at the
point of reception (if your into foucault and barthes) and that you have
little control over as an artist, but rather that you are exposing more
material for interpretation, i would say, a more heuristic discourse....
